History Unfolds in “Real Time” via Downloadable Harper’s Weekly – the Civil War Years.
This year is the 150th anniversary of the crucible event in American history, the Civil War. E-book and E-magazine publisher NOVOInk have teamed with historian Rick Marschall to present readers an exciting and accessible window to the causes and controversies, the battles and leaders, of the War Between the States.
Harper’s Weekly was the premier news magazine of the day. The best writers, artists, and war correspondents made every battle and event immediate for its readers. Now it is possible to re-live those momentous events through the best in new technology – regular downloads of every Harper’s Weekly magazine!
Subscribers will receive their issues 150 years after the original publications, allowing them to experience the “current events” of news, interviews, analysis, profiles, even vintage advertising… and classic artwork, portraits, battle scenes, and maps.
Every monthly download gives the reader 4 issues from the month’s issues…exactly 150 years after it happened.
